This week was our 4th visit to The Queen Victoria. We had an issue with some planned maintenance causing us inconvenience on Wednesday but Innkeeper Doug stepped up and made it right...this is the way customer service should be! Thanks again and we will recommend The Queen to all!

I'm sorry for the inconvenience of the replacement of your room's air conditioner. We never want to inconvenience any of our guests, and we always arrange for work to be done when we don't expect guests to be in their rooms (during the summer, that usually means during the day). At least we were able to pull the noisy window... More

This was a wonderful birthday weekend away my boyfriend spoiled me with. The Queen Victoria spares no expense and really goes out of their way to make you feel at home.

More like a hotel, because there are 2 or 3 houses right by each other, owned by queen victoria, so I didn't feel you got that individual treatment like you do at b and b, they had like a front desk kind of check in, although Maria was very nice, and accommodating.

We have been coming to Cape May for 4 Decades, first as children, and later our children. It is our time now and The Queen will not disappoint. Doug and his wife, and staff are great. The breakfasts are second to none. Free bikes and beach chairs, 1 block to the water and all the action. The only small negative... More

For many years we stayed at the Fairthorne. When it closed recently, we decided to book at the Queen Victoria. We knew that the location was ideal within walking distance of most attractions.
